"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There isn't a whole lot to KMS.  It's a little service which runs on one or more machines in your network.  Once you activate the service with product keys, normally other machines find the server(s) via it's DNS entry.  Once a minimum number of attempted activations are made against the service (the activation threshold), subsequent requests will license the product.  (And assuming you cross that threshold, those initial machines will license as well.)
The best documentation is probably on Technet.  And installation is quick and easy, but I did find a video on Youtube which goes step by step.
